Newbie question..

Recommended Posts

So I just finished putting my first batch into the fermentor. My fermentor does not fit under the spigot so while topping it off to 8.5 quarts I used my sink sprayer. This created a lot of foam in the wort. I then poured in my yeast. 

So, my question is...with all of that foam present in the fermentor, will there be any issues down the road you think when its finally ready to drink? 

Thanks.

All that foam is good...  you need lots of oxygen in initially for the yeasties.  RDWHAHB

I agree.  Lots of oxygen before the lid goes on and fermenting starts.

No oxygen added after that .... during fermentation ... and avoid it when bottling as much as possible.
